Yesterday, the children enjoyed writing play scripts in the sunshine! As part of the Marina Theatre's Untold Tales project, the children are writing a script as a class in the hope they will be performed by real actors/actresses. 


Thank to all those who attended our Story Cafe, the children and staff all really enjoyed themselves!


How you can help your child at home

Reading with your child every night will help them in every element of their work! Within maths, it is really important the children are confident with their times tables. Again this will support them with all their maths skills! 


Thank you for your ongoing support.
